The University and UConn Water System users are under a drought advisory and ask for your cooperation in helping to conserve water.
Tips to Conserve Water
- Take shorter showers.
- Run dishwashers and washing machines with full loads.
- Use water only as needed when washing dishes, shaving, and brushing teeth.
- Raise the thermostat in air conditioned suites/apartments when no one will be in the space for several hours.
- Immediately report any leaky fixtures to The Front Desk - (860) 486-9000.
By reducing consumption during these dry weather conditions, you can help us reduce groundwater withdrawals and protect local streams and the aquatic life they support.
The University will continue to monitor conditions and will provide regular updates at http://www.facilities.uconn.edu/wtr-swr.html.
